Can Chiropractic Relieve Neck Pain? Manchester Chiropractic Thoracic Spine Treatment Helps Ease Neck and Arm Pain.

The spine. Its five sections make up one spine, so it makes sense that treating one area might affect another. So fascinating. So newly published! Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries enjoys new research, and this new research suggests that treating the thoracic spine positively influences the status of the cervical spine. Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries is all for the two-for-one effect for spinal pain reduction! When problems of cervical spine myelopathy and disc herniation are involved, Manchester neck pain patients will be, too.

CERVICAL SPINE PAIN

Cervical spine pain may involve neck pain as well as radiculopathy or cervical radicular pain down the arm. Cervical spine related diseases like this may elicit other issues, too. For example, patients with cervical spine spinal cord disease have 3 times more incidence of having cardiovascular disease. Rapidly progressive cervical spine myelopathy patients are likely to have a history of a cardiovascular event and show C4/5 disc hyperintensity on T2-MRI images. (1) Another interesting report of patients with degenerative cervical myelopathy - a progressive spine disease concerning cervical spinal cord compression – discovered that patients evaluated the quality of their care based on satisfaction. The research findings, therefore, emphasize the importance of telling patients what to expect to enhance satisfaction: At 12 months after surgery for neck degenerative myelopathy, the relief of pain and function issues may be better (37%), may stay the same (55%), or may deteriorate (7%). (2) Honesty is the best policy in life and in doctor-patient interactions. Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries presents its proposed treatment’s expected outcomes and the course of healing to be expected on day one. (ex: “Some days will be nicer than others as you heal. Healing comes when the good days start to exceed the poor ones.”) Manchester chiropractic care incorporating gentle chiropractic adjusting – like with Cox® Technic – improves the odds of good days and more good days!

THORACIC SPINE ADJUSTING HELPS CERVICAL SPINE PAIN

Chiropractic treatment of the thoracic spine can be quite gentle and pain-relieving not just for the thoracic spine but also the cervical spine. Thoracic spine thrust adjusting has been shown to improve cervical spine pain and enhance disability. A current article describes improvements in pain, disability, cervical spine range of motion, and deep neck flexor endurance in patients with cervical spine radiculopathy after just one treatment. These changes were most stated by patients 48 to 72 hours after treatment. (3) Adjacent cervical and thoracic spine sections feed off of each other’s care! Wonderful! There is that positive two-for-one effect again.
